MIGRATION REGULATIONS 1994 - REG 2.21

Most beneficial bridging visas (Act, s 68(4)(b)(ii))

             (1)  For the purposes of subparagraph 68(4)(b)(ii) of the Act (which deals with the order in which bridging visas are reactivated), if a non-citizen holds more than 1 bridging visa, the bridging visa that is the most beneficial is to be determined as set out in this regulation.

             (2)  The order of classes from most beneficial to least beneficial is:

                     (a)  Bridging B (Class WB) visa;

                     (b)  Bridging A (Class WA) visa;

                     (c)  Bridging C (Class WC) visa;

                     (d)  Bridging D (Class WD) visa;

                   (da)  Bridging R (Class WR) visa;

                     (e)  Bridging E (Class WE) visa;

                      (f)  Bridging F (Class WF) visa.

             (3)  A bridging visa of Class WA, WB or WC that confers an unlimited right to work is taken to be more beneficial than another bridging visa of the same class that confers a limited right to work, and a bridging visa of one of those classes that confers a limited right to work is taken to be more beneficial than one of the same class that confers no right to work.

             (4)  A bridging visa of Class WA, WB or WC is taken to be more beneficial than another bridging visa of the same class that is subject to the same work conditions if the first-mentioned visa was granted before the second-mentioned visa.

             (5)  If a non-citizen holds 2 or more Bridging E visas, the one that is granted later or latest is taken to be the more or most beneficial.
